Community Event on the Future of Healing offered by United Way Pierce County

When:   Tuesday, February 11, 2020

Time:     11:30 AM – 4:00 PM PST

Where:   Pierce County Library’s Administrative Center and Library 3005 112th Avenue E,  Tacoma, 98446

Historical and intergenerational trauma is real and far reaching. The cumulative emotional wounding from generation to generation can contribute to many negative health outcomes for individuals including PTSD, depression, and Type 2 diabetes – as well as impacting the community as a whole.

Community Trauma and Child Well-Being: A Deeper Dive into the Future of Healing, is scheduled for Tuesday, February 11th, at the Washington State Convention Center and via Webstream. Based on the overwhelmingly positive feedback from last year’s Forum, we’re thrilled to welcome back Dr. Shawn Ginwright, Professor of Education and Africana Studies at San Francisco State University, as our keynote speaker, and Seattle pediatrician Dr. Ben Danielson as our panel moderator. Together, they’ll once again guide us through thought-provoking discussions, challenge our thinking, and share their expert perspectives.

This year’s Forum will focus on the “how” of our work. How can we best understand and begin to address community trauma? What practical tools are available for those of us who work with children, youth and families to start the healing process?

• Delve into topics of racism, inequality, and poverty and explore more collective approaches to healing.
• Hear from a panel of community leaders who focus on healing in their approach to working with individuals, communities and systems.
• Walk away with concrete strategies that support children and youth (and the adults working with them) in a holistic, strength-based way.
